A social network for car fans founded by the three former presenters of BBC motoring show “Top Gear” says it will launch later this year, Digital Trends reports.

DriveTribe aims to be a place for people who like cars to come together and share videos, photos, and debates. It sounds almost like a specialised version of Reddit. DriveTribe says on its site that it will launch in the Autumn.

Jeremy Clarkson left the BBC show in 2015 after a “fracas” in which he was accused of punching producer Oisin Tymon, who was treated in hospital. His co-presenters, Richard Hammond and James May, left the show with him.

Now Clarkson, Hammond, and May are working on a TV show: “The Grand Tour,” which will be shown to Amazon Video subscribers.
